FREE CONE DAY
This evening, beginning at 4 p.m., stop in at one of the 250+ participating Häagen-Dazs ice cream shops to receive a free scoop of ice cream. Similar to Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day that happens every April, any Häagen-Dazs flavor is free for the licking with no strings attached. The hardest decision of Free Cone Day will be how to choose between Coconut Macaron, Banana Split, Java Chip, or any other delicious Häagen-Dazs flavor. President of Shops at Häagen-Dazs, Dawn Uremovich, released a statement explaining, “We wanted to create a fun-filled afternoon that gets people out of their houses and we couldn’t think of a better way than to entire them with a free scoop of ice cream.” Better hurry though! Free Cone Day ends tonight at 8 p.m. To find a participating Häagen-Dazs ice cream shop near you visit their Facebook page’s store locator or check out the graphic below.
In 1979, as a way to thank their loyal customers for their support and for enjoying the "chunkiest, funkiest" ice cream flavors Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream founders, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, created Free Cone Day. Since then the fan-favorite event has spread to 800 shops in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Now in its 34th consecutive year, Free Cone Day is upon us for all ice cream lovers to take a lick. Brace the lines at your local Ben & Jerry shop this afternoon through tonight at 8 p.m. to enjoy a complimentary scoop of your favorite flavor. Choose from any of their famous ice creams, frozen yogurt, sorbets, or the new member of the Ben & Jerry's family, Greek Frozen Yogurt, available in four great flavors. A must-try today, or any day, is the Greek Frozen Yogurt in Banana Peanut Butter.
